Butter Icing

Ingredients

1 tablespoons Karo
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/4 stick oleo
1/2 teaspoon soda

Method

Cook until thick.  Spoon over cake just out of the oven.  You have to stir this until it is thick and use a big pan as the soda will cause it to boil over.  What a mess it makes

Interesting that the Prune Cake has no prunes in the ingredients. I'm guessing that is a mistake on the author's part. I've added prunes to the ingredient list. Personally, I would leave out the coconut, but I'm not a huge coconut fan anyway.
